Ovation’s new 1627VL features a shallow “Vintage Lyrachord®” body made from the same interwoven glass and hybrid resin materials used on early Ovations from the 60’s and 70’s. The shallow body is designed to provide plenty of cut to overcome other instruments in the mix. You get a little less bass, a strong mid-range, and bright high-end which helps every note stand out in an arrangement.
Ovation’s “shallow bowl” design pairs durable Lyrachord® composite construction with a meticulously engineered round-back design to deliver a richly rewarding acoustic experience ideal for stage and studio alike. With a slender non-cutaway profile that results in even lighter weight than most other Ovation round-back models, the shallow bowl is extremely durable and maintains the outstanding string-to-string balance of original Ovation designs. This diminutive depth provides extraordinary playing comfort ideally suited to smaller players and those who prefer a slim-profile instrument.
Designed to reduce hum and line noise, the Stereo FET preamp delivers stunning stereo output, and waist-mounted individual volume and tone controls are quick and easy to adjust while performing. A contemporary version of the electronics that launched the Adamas acoustic/electric line in 1979, the Stereo FET preamp is an Ovation classic.
